Since retiring from international rugby, Maggie Alphonsi has successfully turned her attention to talking about the game as a commentator. She was part of ITV’s 2015 Rugby World Cup broadcast line-up before becoming part of their ongoing rugby broadcast team. Her inclusion made her the first ever former female player to commentate on the men’s rugby. She is also a regular on Sky Sports, BBC Sport and England Rugby TV.

Further cementing her position as a leading ruby expert, she was appointed the first England Women’s player on the Rugby Football Union’s Council in 2016 with a specialism of diversity and inclusion. She is also an ambassador for the charities Peace One Day, Wooden Spoon, SportsAid, Sporting Equals and SKRUM.
She has been celebrated countless times throughout her career, being named the 2010 Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year, being inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame the same year and being the first woman to receive the Pat Marshall Award in its history. She was a crucial member of the team that won the 2014 rugby World Cup who then went on to win the BBC Sports Personality Team of the Year award.
